Hang In There

Lavender 1

Haiku 157

Hang in there my friend

Though you bow in weariness

You are not alone


Lavender 2

This is my third lavender bush over many years. They all up and die on me at some point. Though this is only a year old, I think that Sparky the squirrel has been digging around in the roots, burying nuts!

When I saw that all the green had gone, and my lavender plant looked shrivelled up and dead, I trimmed it back a little and added more potting soil.

After a short time I noticed new green growth. It looks like it may survive after all!

      haha Yes I’m sure lavender is a popular plant. πŸ™‚
      Luckily for me, mine has even more new growth and buds. Hooray! πŸ˜€

    Love your Haiku. Thumbs up for trying to save your lavender plant, and for apparently succeeding!!! Sadly, I have no luck with them so I’ve given up. Can you put some wire or fairly large rocks around base of plant to encourage Sparky to find somewhere else to bury his nuts?!

      Thank you very much πŸ˜€
      Ah Sparky mostly leaves my plants alone, so I’m hoping the lavender will perk up now. πŸ™‚
